“Fabulous, spacious apartment in a quiet area.”
We were three adults for the first week and two of us the second week. This apartment is even better than the online photos. It is very spacious, beautifully furnished, including good beds, and comes supplied with almost everything you need. This includes dishwasher detergent, laundry soap and kitchen supplies (no food). The location is on a quiet street only a five minute walk from a beautiful beach. We managed without a car but if you want to go sightseeing you may want to rent a car for a few days. Everyone we dealt with was lovely and the housekeeper did a very good job when she came twice a week. There are not many amenities in the area, but a couple of restaurants you can walk to, as well as restaurants at The Crane Resort which is close by. If you want nightlife this is not the place for you. If you want relaxation and peace, this is perfect. The only drawback is that there is no swimming pool. We didn't miss it since we love the ocean and you can't have it all at this price. I highly recommend this apartment.
Response from the owner thanks so much for your wonderful review. we look forward to welcoming you again at Mermaid Apts, the Crane
Fabulous location on the most beautiful island. Minutes from one of the world's most fantastic beaches. I recommend this vacation home to any adventurers seeking to experience Barbados from coast to coast. Great memories were shared in the Mermaid Apartments with our family this Christmas - definitely a vacation of a lifetime. Thank you!
Response from the owner So glad you enjoyed the peace and tranquility of Mermaid Apts. We look forward to welcoming you as a guest in the future
“Mermaid comfort and convenience”
Mermaid has everything you need. The breeze keeps it comfortable even without air conditioning. It's close to the beach and only 10 minutes from the airport (no air traffic noise). The apartment is clean and has internet, TV, cooking utensils, fans, and even a cooler if you want to take a side trip. The neighborhood is safe and pleasant, and good for a walk along the beach if you go north through the neighborhood first for a quarter mile or so. They even have beach towels if you need them, and you can sit on the roof and watch the sun set.
“An Incredible Spot”
My partner and I vacationed with friends and could not have had a more perfect vacation. Barbados is a beautiful island and the Mermaid was exactly how I wanted to experience it. Away from the craziness of the downtown areas, we had a beautiful view of crashing waves and open ocean, and an amazing breeze to keep cool and drink our morning Rum Punch. The Wifi is fast, the kitchen is fully loaded and spacious, the bathrooms are clean, the bedrooms are wonderful and full of windows. The Mermaid was the perfect place for us to enjoy our time together as a group cooking meals and swimming in peace. And we had an amazing time touring through the towns. We hired a car from the suggested business and it was totally hassle free. I will definitely be staying at the Mermaid again.
“Wonderful Relaxing Experience!”
Spent a week in the Mermaid apt with my wife and three children. Ages 8,13, 16. Wonderful experience, everything stated by previous reviewers is correct. A beautiful beach is a short walk away, and is very private. Saw one other local couple enjoying it while we were there. If you plan on sightseeing, rent a car as most of the attractions are about 20 -30 minutes away, closer to the Caribbean side of the island. Also, most of the restaurants are away from this side of the island, so if you don't plan on doing some of you own cooking, a automobile is desirable. The bus stop to town is just 2 minute walk around the corner. Overall this is the perfect place, and the perfect location if you want to have access to it all. Peace and tranquility, reasonable access to attractions, close to airport, safe, great beach, and a wonderful sea breeze that beats any air conditioned hotel room!
“Trip of a lifetime”
Mermaid apartments was the perfect home away from home during our stay in Barbados. We had a fabulous vacation, and Mermaid apartments was everything we hoped for and more in our accommodation on the island. The location was beautiful and just a short walk from The Crane Beach, where we spent lots of sunny days playing in the waves. The apartment was a great home base during our stay and a quiet, relaxing spot to head back to after days spent exploring the island. It's spacious with lovely furnishings throughout, and the fully equipped kitchen made it easy to settle in. In the evenings, we had cocktails on the rooftop deck while watching the sunset, and had lots of memorable dinners in the sunroom. The bright bedrooms have big closets and very comfortable beds, not to mention the most amazing sea breeze flowing through. It's also just a short drive from The Crane Resort and a grocery store, and we had no trouble getting to and from then airport. We would definitely recommended Mermaid apartments to our friends and family - we can't wait to go back and look forward to staying there again in the future!
Everything was exactly as described on the website. What must be also mentioned is how homey and cosy this lovely apartment was, and so quiet and peaceful after our ten days at Hastings! The property is very clean and everything show attention to detail, the furnishings are very lovely and we really enjoyed every facet of the property...we had evening glasses of wine on the upper deck and watched the beautiful colors of the sky and setting sun, we enjoyed our breakfast and lunch in the covered patio with the comfy chairs, we had romantic dinners by candlelight at the glass topped table, and enjoyed preparing our own meals in the well equipped Italian kitchen! The internet service was great, and we also reclined after dark, watching a movie on the leather sofa. The bed was very comfortable, and the entire layout is very spacious. Maggie was tremendously helpful and responded quickly and often to my emails with various questions. I would definitely recommend this to a friend, as long as it was still available for us to rent! We enjoyed walking every morning, we took many different routes, but found our favorite walking adventure was to the ruins at Sam Lord's Castle, the Shark Hole, and also walking along the cliffs with the amazing views of the ocean. We also loved just relaxing and enjoying the view of the gardens, the sound of the sea, going to nearby Ginger Bay and exploring the 'bat cave' there. We ate at Cutter's - they have terrific 'cutters' (flying fish sandwiches) and they will also deliver right to Crane beach, they come by every noon hour to see if you want to order anything. We did, and it was very convenient. We also enjoyed the rum punch at the Crane, be sure to check out their happy hour from 530 - 630 every evening (except Monday), the pina coladas were tasty as well. We cooked our own meals, so didn't try any other restaurants. We absolutely loved our stay and have already planned to return again next year!
“Home away from home!”
Picking up the keys and getting to the apartment went very smoothly. We were impressed with both the apartment and its location. The apartment was huge and well appointed. It really felt like a home away from home. Located in a safe area, nestled amongst some million dollar homes, it's just a short walk to a quiet beach. What did we like best? - spaciousness. You won't feel caged in here. - the breeze throughout the place was wonderful, especially for sleeping. - huge roof top deck and it's view. - sunroom for reading - bright airy bedrooms with lots of closet space - large bathrooms - big kitchen with icemaker - fast reliable WiFi - excellent cable TV. We didn't miss any of our favourite shows from back home. - quiet We liked everything about this place. We've visited Barbados every year for over 40 years. This will be our accomodation of choice in the future. Thank you for making such a beautiful place available!
We loved our stay at the Mermaid apartments. There were seven of us staying in the 1 and 3 BR apartments. Before arrival Lynn the property manager was very helpful in responding to our questions about the property and surrounding area. She set up a lovely taxi service for us upon arrival and arranged for groceries to be waiting in the fridge. Pulling into the driveway we could hear the whistling frogs and the ocean, and waking up the next morning saw the gorgeous view from the rooftop patio of the atlantic. We spent time exploring all the surrounding beaches that we could easily walk to - Sharks Hole, Ginger Bay, and the Crane via public access. The grocery store was also a short drive (10 minutes maximum) away. We were able to cook many lovely meals in the full kitchen, an amenity we appreciated. We also used the washer and dryer in the 3 BR. The garden was gorgeous and the downstairs neighbor was very friendly. The rooms were spacious and beds were comfortable. Overall the Mermaid was the perfect place for us to explore Barbados and we look forward to staying there again soon!
“Beautiful apartment, excellent location”
Great place. Apartment was immaculate & beautifully furnished. Great view of ocean. 5 minute walk to a private sandy beach & 10 minutes to Crane Resort. Kitchen was fully equipped and it was great to have a barbeque. Loads of clean towels and linens. Internet worked perfectly. Super upper deck for evening cocktails. The Property Manager was very nice & super helpful. Only bad thing was our visit was too short - will stay longer next time!
